OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Individuals that sign up to receive IMT newsletters voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and email address). IMT uses this information for the specific, limited purposes for which it was provided. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.
IMT sites may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our sites, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION MAY BE USED
IMT may use your personal information to send email alerts to you and to send you our newsletter. You may choose to opt out at any time by unsubscribing from our messages, which will cease all communications from IMT.
We may also use web traffic data to track visitors of our websites. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.
STORAGE AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your information collected through IMT’s sites is stored and processed on servers in the United States. Users in the European Union should be aware that their data will be transferred to the United States and that the European Commission has not found United States law to adequately protect the rights of data subjects. IMT takes reasonable precautions to ensure that all processing activities conducted on our behalf are compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Under that regulation, EU users who believe their data has been misused have the right to lodge a complaint with their Member State’s supervisory authority.
ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION
You can contact IMT by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire if we are keeping personal information about you. Factual errors in your personal information, including out-of-date information, can be corrected by sending an email to email@example.com with a request for such a change that credibly shows our error.
In an effort to safeguard your personal information, ARCS uses encryption to protect credit cards, donation records, and other confidential information. Nevertheless, despite our best efforts, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
IMT does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone for any purposes, except that we may share this information with third-party vendors as necessary forthe distribution of our own newsletters and alerts. Such vendors are contractually prohibited from using or sharing your personal data for any other purpose.
IMT online properties include links to external websites. These links do not fall under the domain, and IMT is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.
From time-to-time our newsletters or web sites may requests information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of IMT programs, tools, and resources.
